"Susan's humor is as subtle as a sharp razor blade and her columns always look at life and people from a positive point of view—a wonderful feature that should be a great read for anyone in book form."
—Jim Wright, Mayor of Tryon

"Susan's snippets of life here are fun, chatty, sometimes very personal, and sometimes just a little bit peppery. Tryon Diary is charming and insightful—a must read!"
—Patti D'Arbanville, actress and Tryon resident

“Susan eloquently captures the quirks and bona fides of Tryon’s diverse population, always with a warm heart willing to see potential oddity as charm.”
—Richard Christian Nelson, portrait artist and Tryon gallery owner
